it in the world of ron cason is? >> george is one of the things, and i'll say this in modest and i'm proudest of the abc news, george was a contributor on the roundtable this week when i came in. one of the first things i did was i sat down with him because i've gotten to know him all little bit, and i see how intelligent he is, but also what a wonderful student he is. i mean, unlike many broadcasters he's willing to go back and relearn things and learn from his mistakes. so i sat down with him and said george, i don't know what you want to do, at the time his teaching, he just written his book about his experience in the clinton administration. and i said i don't know what you want to do but if you want to give all this up and just go into journalism obama i think he would be great. he said it's funny, i've been thinking that's what i'd like to do. i told him, the problem is you have to go back to the beginning. you will have to learn this crap you don't have. whether it's reading a teleprompter or stand up or whatever. he did it. when we moved into the anchor of this week on sunday morning,
. ron paul was taking a powder to get out of the camera way in the house or whatever so these two guys are the two senators. >> stephanie: he's the senator from the green room. >> nobody wants to see mcconnell or boehner. they're the two that we'll take the spotlight because we look like we're in the process of doing something which for the record they're not! >> stephanie: dean in atlanta. you're on with hal. welcome, dean. >> caller: how are you? >> stephanie: good. go ahead. >> caller: i just want to preface my comment with the observation that i think -- i should practice law. i think justice scalia's pretty much a bully and -- has some issues of his own that need resolution. but i think you're missing the point and i haven't heard anybody really speak about it. either on your show or elsewhere i don't think he's saying that gay marriage is murder. what i think he would argue is that there is a -- that the government has the right to outlaw or make illegal behavior that it considers immoral. >> stephanie: r
less so a little bit. ron clain less so. we have to make this guy look presidential. romney's killing himself. we don't need to be -- the word they kept using was caustic. so they gave him contradictory advice. he was conflicted. at one point before he left for that disastrous debate prep in nevada, he said i don't know what i'm doing here. you're giving me contradictory advice. >> jonathan, here's a tough question. maybe you don't know the answer to this. john kerry was the head of the debate team. he was the guy playing him. was he part of the team that said get tough and other guys overruled him later? what happened? >> i will refer to glen. generally that john kerry was not blamed by the president or the president's high command for his poor denver debate performance. they said kerry did his job effectively. and the proof of that, chris, is the fact that john kerry is about to become secretary of state. >> were they tough? were they having the president go after the other guy like he should have? or were they softening up? how would you sbrieb the preparation? >> kerry was more of
are against it. that's not true. >> that's right. >> stephanie: let's go to -- ron in texas. you're on "the stephanie miller show." hi ron. >> caller: hi, sexy mama. >> stephanie: hey baby. >> caller: chris and jim too. my partner of 14 years and i were doing some calculations the other day and you know that as person earning $10 an hour which most people in low-end jobs don't even earn that but the fiscal bunny hop that we're going to take, i think we ought to take it because quite frankly, it will be about $8 a week in extra taxes and you know, if they retro act that back to the first they'll get the money back. so really, what is the effect? it's negligible. i think -- i agree with clinton. let's do the arithmetic. you know. count the numbers. >> stephanie: right. yeah. >> caller: i'm waiting for friday too. we want to get married one of these days. >> stephanie: aww yea. me too. well yeah, that's the thing. it has been fearmonger and demagogued, people don't get you kind of go oh, that's all of the scream
to talk, all right. >> bill: hey, let's say hello to ron calling from chicago. good morning. >> caller: good morning, bill. good morning guys. >> bill: how are you? >> caller: good. i'm on my way to work. i want to make a comment about bob costas. he makes the comments. >> bill: bob costas, yes. >> caller: he makes the comments, what i think in the framework of caring about two people losing their lives. and they want to run him out on the rail and it was just a month ago richard mourdock makes comments, where was the outage he shouldn't even be allowed to run. just the difference of both sides is amazing to me these people that -- >> bill: well, yeah. sometimes it is just hard to explain. the inconsistency outraged about one thing and not outraged about another. when it comes to -- it is not surprising for the nra. this is their position. they've gone from an organization at one time which really did a great job representing hunters and saying you know, we've got our rights. we want to be able to contin
the line seems to be the message. ron from elgin, illinois. what do you say? >> good morning, bill. no deal. no how. no way. the american people very long spoken. this is not an ologarchy mr. boehner would like to put in place. the american people, as others have said, have his back. no deal. >> i love that. no deal. no how. no way. again, i am not against compromise on compromise -- when compromise is necessary. there is no reason to cave no reason to compromise with this gang. right? we won. we won. we asked the -- the president asked the american people: what the do you want? do you want the wealthiest to pay the 2%, to pay a little higher taxes? yes or no? if you vote yes, sir, vote for me. he won. right? >> he won. the american people have said yes. >> i like it. i like it ron, no deal no way. no how. we have your back. mr. president, mary is from wergin, illinois. >> it's weir-gin illinois. >> i'm sorry. our bad. >> a lot of people calling you. i think your message congratulations and stay strong. don't cag, those are all smokes that
defense. now since then he has switched attorneys. joining to us talk about this is lucia mcbeth and ron davis, jordan davis' parents and their attorney as well john phillips. it has been a horrific three weeks for you. i cannot imagine how awful it has been, if you can, ms. mcbeth, tell me how you found out that jordan had been killed. what happened? >> a phone call from his father, my husband and i were in chicago for thanksgiving and i happened to come up to the bedroom and i saw ron's name pop up, and i knew the moment i saw his name, that late at night, i knew it had to do with jordan. >> did you know it had to be bad? >> i knew in my spirit it was not good. i knew that it could not be good that late at night for him to be calling. >> when did you, mr. davis, learn the details of what had happened in the parking lot? because the shooting was horrific, but the details around the shooting awful as well. >> yes. its first call i got was from the best friend of my son, and he had phoned his mother while in the car and his mother called me and i rushed to the hospital to see about my son
representative ron kirk is also on the mentioned list in terms of retiring. host: but none of those formally? guest: not official . host: has anybody said i'm sticking around? guest: that would be kind of unproforma but i think kathleen seebluss said she would like to stay because of the implementation of the health care law. no one announces that. they kind of get the word out there. there have been some talk about whether eric holder will retire but he told people he would like to stay for a year or certainly until september when we're likely to get a new f.b.i. director. host: if you're not leaving immediately at the end of the first term are you expected to stay for all four years of the second term or is there another dated where turnover occurs? guest: the way i understand it is if president obama has told people if they do stay he wants them to stay for at least a year because he doesn't want to spend all of his time filling these jobs. so the rule of thumb is if people are still in place at the end of january they'll probably stay for the entire year. host: we're taking your calls an
classless. it's people like you who divide this country. [ applause ] >> stephanie: ron writes ms. miller i was listening to your song, and wondering if you are some type of liberal idiot. well are there multiple choices? you should be ashamed of yourself for try to be so bitchy. >> you don't have to try to be bitchy. >> stephanie: oh, my god does it come naturally. i eat a big bowl of bitchy every morning. >> it wasn't your song. >> stephanie: no, i didn't even hear it. i bet the conservatives don't make songs about you. >> oh! >> stephanie: i was wondering why you liberals are so hateful. >> was there anything hateful -- >> hannity said it was hateful there -- >> yes. >> stephanie: he said that i said all racists are conservative, which i never said, but okay. god will judge all you idiots at some time or another. good luck on how he judges you. has anyone ever gone to hell for a parody song? seriously? i'm not saying i'm not going to be judged, but is that what is going to come up? >> i think god has better things to do than to send people to hell for parody songs. >>
, their economy not one of them. >> the parthanon a nice thing to see when you go to athens. when ron paul was running he got huge applause when he said a government that continues to deval its currency destroys the middle class. >> they don't have the money, they run out of borrowing power, guess what they do. they start printing money. >> reporter: the federal reserve has printed more moon to deep interest rates low. most economists agree there is a big risk in there, the debt to gdp ratio is 102%. our debt is actually greater now than the amount of money the entire u.s. economy produces. even at historically low interest rates that interest on the debt will cost the u.s. $222 billion this year. 570billion by the year 20, 22 if the rates stay that low. if interest rates ricin slightly every sector of the economy will have a hard time paying its bills. >> servicing the debt is hard now. this is with interest rates at record lows. god forbid something should happen to cause interest rates to go up just a little, back to where they ordinarily would be, the burden of this debt will become im
that in much broader debt deal. but when you talk to republicans ron johnson from wisconsin, the real problem the president is not willing to rein in spending. >> senator harry reid should have passed a budget in the last three years and you would have a framework and budget resolution. the fact we're down to the 59th minute of the 11th hour and you have a couple officials behind closed doors trying to do a back room deal is an outrage. >> reporter: we're waiting for senator reid to come to the microphones and what is significant about that he has is supposed to give a status update on the talks, not just about cpi and reining in entitlements whether that is going to be part of a final deal but what is the threshold on tax cuts and increases. on the meeting with friday says he wants to go back to the threshold of $250,000 or less. that is tax cut over 250, it's a tax increase. senator mcconnell may be trying to move that to $400,000. >> arthel: and then the notion of lowering social security payments is definitely off the table in terms of democrats' side? >> it's clear from senator reid said
's joined by fellow pennsylvania senator rick santorum and texas governor rick perry. texas congressman ron paul for once isn't on the list. but his son, senator rand paul, is creating a category with jeb bush that we're going to call relatively speaking. then there are the guys weighing a presidential run who let's say say national name recognition isn't a strong point. john thune and indiana governor-elect mike pence may not win national popularity contests at least this year, but both have been hailed for their leadership potential. as shining stars in the gop. they may have to compete for the party faithful, but those accustomed to a certain level of national fame, if not infamy. those like new jersey governor chris christie. perhaps, the only contender to have actually hugged president obama. or ohio senator rob portman, a constant presence next to mitt romney on the trail. virginia governor, bob mcdonnell, of the transvaginal proposal and scott walker whose union fighting ways made him a darling of the tea party. just to be clear, reports of the demise of the republican party are grea
. our chief political analyst gloria borger was one of the moderators with ron brownstein. what struck you, someone that covered the campaign. you learned some stuff. >> i did. first of all, wolf, this is the first time a lot of people running the campaigns actually met each other face to face. they sat around a big sfar table and had to kind of look at each other and it is so hard on the losing side. you have spent years of your life. there's a picture of the table. you spent years of your life devoted to running a presidential campaign. and if you're the loser, it's really hard. so one of the questions i asked at this panel discussion was about the infamous 47% tape and in which mitt romney said that 47% of the people wouldn't vote for him, that they felt entitled. matt rhodes who ran his campaign answered that question and we only have audio so listen to what he said. >> and i remember speaking to him and, you know, there was a lot of negativity about our campaign as a whole, but he's a person that takes personal responsibility about it. and he would tell me, you know, to me, like,
